The man who trademarked Electroclash (tm) as a style of club music and a way of life in the early '00s, Larry Tee ran a nightclub (Brooklyn's Luxx) and threw highly publicized (for the dance underground, at least) events like Berliniamsburg and Club Badd, which aided the growth of groups that combined punkish performance attitude with electronics. Somewhat confusingly, Electroclash (tm) actually had little to do with '80s electro pioneers like Afrika Bambaataa and the Egyptian Lover, and had much more to do with a mutant version of synth-based new wave (rather than funk). As Tee curated the Electroclash (tm) scene in New York -- which included groups like W.I.T. and Fischerspooner -- he brought it to other cities via live shows and the release of a defining compilation. Electroclash (tm) was released on his own Mogul Electro in late 2001. Less than two years later, the double-disc The Electroclash Mix was mixed by Tee and issued on Moonshine.
